Lat Am agchem container recycling up 5% in 2013
CropLife Latin America’s network of 18 national associations collected and/or recycled some 50,077 tonnes of empty pesticide containers in 2013. The total of collections represented a rise of some 4.5% on the previous year. The associations invested $20 million in the CuidAgro and CampoLimpio programmes. The former trained over 145,000 farmers in the triple rinsing, while the latter managed the empty pesticide container collections.
